    One of the photo's show the table on the saddle and bed and the outboard support sitting next to the machine. I would suggest you slide them under the saddle and rough level it for now so the saddle and table don't twist. Also when you place wood under parts on the floor place the part on 3 points at 30% : 40% - 30%. I have been writing about this on PM for years. If your in a hurry 2 x 4' or 6 x 6 at 30% is better then on the ends. 3- points will self level like a transit. If you have a surface plate on a stand, look under the plate. Expensive Grade A surface plates set on 3 points to eliminate twists.

    I hope you got more big pieces than what is in picture 3 as you are missing some large parts. Did you try contacting G&L? They should be able to get you a manual from your serial number. They were able to provide me with one and a foundation diagram for my 340T.

    Well, if blakelyj2 is gonna bump the thread, I'm going to ask...

    Did you ever get it back together? and What was your final solution for oiling the machine?

    That's good. If it was my machine I'd block up the free end of the cross travel leadscrew before it gets damaged.

    Regards Tyrone.

    A cheap positive pressure oil pumping system I ve used many times is an injector pump off a diesel engine......rotary or inline .....but with an inline(Bosch PE type),you can ,if you are keen) adjust the individual plunger outputs,as well as using the rack to controll the whole lot.Rotary pumps will be on full delivery all the time,unless you delve indside them,and get to the metering valve.

    Not yet I am stuck at the lube system still. I've been really busy and haven't had time to work on it. I guy from Lube U.S.A. is supposed to come by the shop when he has time or is in my area. I am missing some of the table clamping parts so I will need to figure that out. The man that started the rebuild bought new gibs and scraped one side of each one. I will have to finish and fit them.
